Reports, Of A Sort, of Iranian Nuke Test

Unlikely and unsourced. But it's being "reported," so, like AP and Reuters, I'm responded to report it but say "the nuclear detonation could not be independently verified."

Via Allah, who reports (though it could not be independently verified) that "elite snowtrooper and Bronze star winner" (with special cluster for Blogging Above And Beyond The Call of Duty) Glenn Greenwald is all atwitter that we've raided an Iranian terrorist base. He's primarily concerned about how this might complicate the dangerous sorties he's running into northwest Pakistan, of course.

Greg Tinti:

The dumbest reaction I've seen to this on the left is from Glenn Greenwald, whom without apparently understanding the irony of his question, asks, "Isn't it a definitive act of war for one country to storm the consulate of another, threaten to kill them if they do not surrender, and then detain six consulate officers?"

Heh. Glenn's apparently too busy shootin' up Al Qaeda evil doers to remember a similar incident back in 1979. Eh, it didn't get much press, so it's forgivable.

I don't know about you, but it seems that Greenwald's rather quick to side with Iran on this one.

Quick? I did not know reflex actions permitted of variations in speed.

PS, US officials are denying that Iranian safehouse was a consulate at all.

Eh. Either way works for me.

Three Explosions?: Surely they're not testing three bombs at once.

Three strong explosions jolted southern Iran on Thursday, the semi-official Fars news agency reported, but gave no information about possible casualties.

"Three explosions were so strong that they shook windows of houses," the agency said, adding that the explosions happened in Khorramshahr in the border province of Khuzestan.

Khuzestan, the heartland of Iran's oil industry, has been simmering with unrest among the province's mostly Arab population for more than a year.

Slightly more than half of Iran's are 69 million people are Persians and the rest are ethnic Azeris, Kurds, Arabs, Turkmen, Baluchis and Lors.

Three blasts. I likes it.
